The Netball World Cup goes to Cape Town

July 20, 2023 IN THE CATEGORY: Sport sponsorship

The Netball World Cup is on a South African tour in preparation for the Vitality Netball World Cup 2023 tournament. SPAR South Africa has sponsored national and international competitions for over 20 years and regards netball as its flagship sponsorship.

The tournament trophy recently arrived, to much excitement, on South African soil. This highly-anticipated world event will be taking place at Cape Town International Convention Centre from the 28th of July to the 6th of August 2023.

The Netball World Cup will bring together the world’s top 16 netball-playing nations. Amongst the sixteen are four African nations: South Africa, Malawi, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

Two South African companies, SPAR and Telkom, are premium sponsors, reflecting their continuous support for netball over a long period, working in partnership with World Netball and Netball South Africa. Netball is the biggest women’s sport in South Africa and is played across the country, from remote villages to metropolitan areas.

A SPAR South Africa company spokesperson said they are extremely proud of the SPAR Proteas, who have gone from strength to strength. They are equally proud of their association with the SPAR National Championships, which is designed to provide opportunities for young women from around South Africa.

About SPAR South Africa

SPAR South Africa was established in 1963. It operates four retail formats: SPAR neighbourhood, SPAR Express (operated in conjunction with Shell as a petrol forecourt store), KWIKSPAR (which focuses on convenience in city centres and high footfall locations), and SUPERSPAR Supermarkets (similar to EUROSPAR in offer).

South Africa was the first country outside Europe to join the SPAR organisation. The SPAR Group Ltd South Africa grants sub-licences to independent retailers to operate stores under one of the four formats, with almost all the current store portfolio being independently owned.
